Don't know: Tea is derived from a tree called camellia sinensis. The leaves contain antioxidant polyphenols which have an anti-carcinogenic effect. The linus pauling institute reported a study that suggest extracts from green tea can act as a plant-based alternative for glycemic control. I really don't think that all the data is in yet for use of green tea with weight loss.

Green tea: Drinking more than 5 cups of green tea per day can lead to side effects. Often 3 to 4 cups per day is beneficial.
